How to Apply Rear Window Decals

GATHER TOOLS

- Soap and water 

- Soft, clean, lint-free cotton cloth 

- New, sharp razor 

- Masking tape 

- Felt-wrapped squeegee

PREPARE THE SURFACE

Clean the window using soapy water, then thoroughly rinse. Be sure the window is free from soap residue.

Warning: Do not use any chemical-based window cleaners, as this may damage the adhesive.

POSITION THE GRAPHIC

Before removing backing material, unroll the graphic and position on the window. Use masking tape along the top edge to temporarily hold the graphic in its desired position. If applying to a split window, cut the graphic where the windows divide.

apply

Once you select the desired placement, carefully remove the backing material. While peeling away the backing material, gently smooth the film against the window, using a felt-wrapped squeegee. If air bubbles form, lift the material gently, and reapply while smoothing the area with the bubbles. 

• If your window curves from left to right, start from the middle and work your way to each side. If your window is curved from top to bottom, then start from the middle and work your way up and then down.

• Trim it. Carefully trim your decal with a razor blade to remove excess material around the perimeter of the window trim.

THE FINISHING TOUCHES

 If your decal or pinstriping has gone over doors or panels, we recommend using the exacto knife to cut it, and then wrapping the remaining sections over the panel. To cut or trim a stripe or graphic, use a very sharp knife and very little pressure to avoid damaging the paint. 


If you see any air bubbles, puncture them with a pin. Do not slit the vinyl to release air, or it will spread or gap.

Custom Rear Window Decal

This is your place for vinyl graphics!

Custom Vinyl Graphics is fantastic! This is not my first dealing with them so I can tell you the positive service is consistent. They helped me with my initial designs and the alterations when I needed another order. They kept me in the loop during the whole process. They reminded me to double check my sizing attuned to the adage “Measure twice, cut once.” Everything was checked with me for approve before going to the printer. What you approve is exactly what you receive. There is no guessing about what is in the package when you receive it. Their representatives are knowledgeable, polite and after dealing with me, have the patience of Mom Teresa. Pricing is comparable to other places I’ve dealt with, however, the quality of service and end result put Custom Vinyl Graphics to the top of my list. So much so, that I asked that they add their logo to my design so I can advertise for them.

Great Decal

Fit perfect and looks great, high quality product!

Awesome patriotic car vinyl decal for an amazing looking car!

Flame Rip Checkered Flag

The quality is good and easy to install but I got the wrong order. I ordered the gray flame and got the red flame instead. Other then that it’s good.

Thank you for your honest review. I wish you would have contacted us before you applied the decals... we could've sent you the grey ones. I apologize for the error.

Wonderful Product

Great customer service! I received much assistance with my design. Only downside was shipping. A shipping tube verses the USPS carton would be a great improvement. Removing creases from the product because of shipping was troublesome. I am still quite happy with finished results.

Thank you for your review. The decal looks amazing!

Very Unsatisfied

Terrible communication practices

To be fair, we sent you a total of 15 replies to your inquiries. Our communication with you was constant and timely. You just hoped that we had the ability to speak via phone. To be honest, I wish we were big enough of a company to offer that as well but we are a small family business. You are entitled to your opinion but we are proud of the product we produced for you.
